Twice a charm
A former Vogue cover star goes behind the scenes to assist on Rebel Wilson’s cover shoot 24 years later.
For former model Jenny Brunt, finding herself on a Vogue set was nothing new. As the cover star of our December 1993 issue, Brunt knows her way around a Vogue shoot better than most. But earlier this year, 24 years after she graced our cover, she returned to join the team behind the lens. As part of stylist Elizabeth Stewart’s team, Brunt was on set for June cover star Rebel Wilson’s Sydney photo shoot, even appearing in a video with the actress giving her modelling tips: to smoulder or not to smoulder? (The video can be seen on Vogue.com.au.) For her 1993 cover, Brunt was photographed by 90s fashion favourite Paul Lange in a Donna Karan top and pants-suit, and, interestingly, didn’t appear inside the magazine, a common practice for titles of the era. Once a Vogue woman, always a Vogue woman.
